Life is to be enjoyed

Life

Oh my goodness, life has definitely been an adventure lately. The past several weeks have been filled with great joy and great disappointments. Just to name a few examples, we have found out that my sister and her husband are officially adopting (happy dance time!!!) And we get to meet the birth mom really soon, I can’t wait!!! My other sister is pregnant with a BOY!!! Lets just say this is huge news since we have mainly nieces lol! We have also found out that Jake’s Grandpa is not doing very good at all and only has a short time left here on earth. We have also learned that we can plan and scheme all we want for our future, but sometimes we are wrong and God knows better. But isn’t it an amazing thing to know that if we just follow in faith, Heavenly Father will lead us to where we need to go, even if it is not necessarily our dream plan. Its such a blessing and comfort to know that God has something bigger and better planned for us.

After dealing with so many up and down emotions for so long I decided that Jake and I needed a break. So I took him on a surprise date. Thank goodness it was one of my better dates lol!

Side Note: I can plan a killer at home date. Seriously, we have gone camping, had  game nights, danced, and lots of fondue and have done several other crazy things at home… but lets just say my track recored of planning a date out on the town could be improved hahah.

Thank goodness our go to baby sitter was available last minute. She brought her sister with her to join the fun and can I just say they are amazing and my girls love them so much!

So to start our date off we headed down to downtown Provo. It is such a fun place to go and walk around and explore. We ended up trying our very first Kronut (It really is delicious!)

Then after exploring all the random shops… and I mean random lol!… we headed down to a Restaurant called Bom Bay House. Its this really nice Indian Restaurant. And guys, it was so good!!! I have never really had Indian food before and when I ordered I had no idea what I was getting, or how to pronounce it hahah. But whatever I ordered was simply delicious and full of yummy flavors. I think I need to learn how to make Indian food now….

Anyways after stuffing ourselves full of food we ended the night going to Iceberg and getting these ginormous shakes (but really they are huge!!! Just get the mini, its like the same size as the large. You won’t regret it!) and the we went home to sleeping kiddos and had a Physic Marathon.

So our date wasn’t super fancy or crazy, ut it was just what we needed and perfect for us. It was so fun to wonder around following our noise and trying whatever we wanted. The only thing I wish is that I snapped some pictures of us. We ended up leaving my phone with the baby sitters. And Jake was pretty excited that he didn’t have to wait to eat his food until I took a picture of it ;)

Our fun didn’t end there either. On Saturday we continued the fun and had a family day out. Have you ever been to a Rugby game? If you haven’t you need to put it on your bucket list. It is so crazy to watch. They are tackling one minute, in a huge huddle the next, jumping up super high, and steamrolling over people the next. I think it has become my new favorite sport to watch haha. Now just to figure out the rules and what everything is called.

What was super helpful was there was a family behind us that loved to comment on everything the entire game. I’ll be honestly, normally it wouldn’t have been my favorite thing in the world, but this time I was like, keep on talking. Tell me whats going on or why that just happend. And did you know that our team is ranked #1? Thats right, we are champions! Go Cougars!!!

So after a much needed fun weekend, I am ready to tackle this week. Bring the crazy adventures, the ups and downs! I know that with my family at my side and with God in the lead I can face anything that come our way. Especially when there are so many moments of joy and laughter along the way.
